A magician got a job on a cruise ship. Unfortunately, his act was ruined by his parrot, who spoiled every trick by saying things like, "the card's up his sleeve!" or "its behind the screen!"

One night the ship hit an ice berg and sunk. The magician managed to escape with his parrot.

For two days the two of them sat in a life boat not saying anything. Finally, the parrot blurted out, "O.K., I give up! Where have you put the boat!"
